ATL scholarships

ATL runs and sponsors schemes designed to assist members in financial difficulties, or to help them towards career or personal development.

Peter Smith scholarship

As a lasting memorial to Peter Smith and his contribution to the work of ATL, the Executive Committee provide a scholarship scheme in his name from which ATL members can apply for assistance with their personal or professional development.

This scheme is designed to encourage those who would not otherwise be able to participate in their chosen activity and not designed to fund courses that would otherwise be funded by another organisation.

Scholarships may be granted to ATL members seeking to return to full-time or part-time study in areas that will help their professional or personal development. Support is normally limited to cover a period of 12 months maximum and can include short training courses. A number of scholarships will be made each year to members in response to applications.

Download the application form below, which also includes details about Peter's life and work - or contact Bernadette Babayigit for more information.

Closing date for applications: Friday 12 May 2017. 

In 2016 the total amount of money applied for was nearly £7,000 against a budget of £2,500. A number of the applicants were not eligible for consideration because they had not complied with the requirements.

Walter Hines Page scholarships

ATL sponsors two scholarships offering teachers and lecturers the chance to study an aspect of the education system in the USA. The Walter Hines Page scholarships are worth £1,500 each, including provision for accommodation, travel and hospitality for a fortnight-long study trip to the USA during the 2017/18 school year.
